For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me in. (Psalm 27:10)
What defines your life?
We build our lives around our relationships and pursuits and things. Whatever it looks like, we find our sun and orbit our lives around it.
The reality of this world is that all those relationships and pursuits and things can’t last. Even the sun will fizzle out one day.
But the Son never will.
When all our relationships are gone, He is still there. When the pursuits have petered out, he persists. When the things are dust, He lives.
When there’s no one else, He will always be.
